Frenchman is sailing round the world with a chicken called Monique

 For the past two years 24-year-old Guirec Soudee has been sailing the high seas with his chicken, Monique. Since he was a kid growing up in Brittany, France, Guirec has dreamt of buying a sailboat and travelling the world. Was part of his dream to meet a chick called Monique to share the journey with him? Who knows, but sometimes life just happens that way.

Guirec met Monique in the Canary Islands in 2013, and apparently it was love at first sight and now the pair are inseparable. Mostly because the boat is quite small so there aren't many different rooms to go in to escape each other if they get in a fight…

And apparently Monique's a natural-born sailor – it didn't take long for her to get her sea legs, and she even learnt to swim, paddle and surf during their trip across the Atlantic Ocean, where they ended up in St. Barts.

But they got fed up of all that lovely tropical weather and drinking cocktails on the beach, so in June 2015 they set sail again and headed for Greenland, arriving two months later. They spent the autumn exploring, and are now living in north-west Greenland. But they're planning on continuing their journey across the world very soon.
